The Pupil Premium is an additional source of funding provided to schools to support the raising of achievement for deprived children, a group recognised nationally as vulnerable to underperformance at school. The funding is calculated by measuring the number of students receiving Free School Meals (FSM) in the last 6 years (‘Ever 6’).
In June 2016 29% of pupils are known to qualify for PP. The National Average is 19.6% and the LA average for Primary is 35.6%
The following reports outlines how we spent our PP funding in 2014-15, and 2015-16, as well as the impact of the spend. The 16-17 strategy is also below.
